Newton went 25 of 51 for 333 passing yards in a 20-14 loss last Thursday to the Tamps Bay Buccaneers.

Tuesday’s practice was the start to the team’s preparations for Sunday’s game at Arizona.

Newton injured his foot during a preseason game against the New England Patriots. He is also coming off shoulder surgery in the offseason.

The Panthers have lost nine of the last 10 regular-season games.

Head coach Ron Rivera will address the media later today around 2:30 p.m.
